Thajiwas Glacier in Sonamarg

Snow masked Thajiwas glacier is one of the most enchanting traveler paradise located just 3 km from the town in Jammu and Kashmir. It is a lovely vantage point to observe snow and the picturesque Kashmir Valley.

Thajiwas is more of natural scenery with patches of grassland, trees and most importantly water flowing amidst them and that too from the source, Glacier itself.

It is can be visited by foot and by hiring ponies. One can find snow even in the summer season. The way to the glacier offers many adventurous routes full of amazing waterfalls and green water. At night time, the moonlight view of the glaciers will take your breath away.

"Thajwas is more of natural scenery with patches of grassland,trees and most importantly water flowing amidst them and that too from the source, Glacier itself. What differentiates it from GULMARG and PAHALGAM? Both are in a way more scenic than Sonmarg with lots of water (minus glacier) at Pahalgam and lots and lots of greenery,meadows grazing land and trees (minus any sort of flowing water) at Gulmarg."

"Snow covered hillsides, not exactly a glacier, maybe I didn't reach the final destination. Climbing up through snow and sledging down is a big attraction. Plus points for not being commercialized. Easy 45 minute walk through the hillsides for young people, don't take cars or mules."
